Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Upper Air Data

This data set contains a composite of the highest resolution (i.e. the “native” resolution) upper air sounding data from all sources for the Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX). Sounding data is included from nine sources: the National Weather Service (23 sites and 1484 soundings), the dropsondes from the NSF/NCAR G-V aircraft (426 soundings), the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Central Facility site (123 soundings), Vandenberg Air Force Base (31 soundings), and soundings from MPEX mobile sounding systems operated by Colorado State University (55 soundings), the National Severe Storms Laboratory (111 soundings), Purdue University (94 soundings), and Texas A&M University (23 soundings). Included are 2347 soundings from 30 platforms from 10 May to 16 June 2013.
